Pop-Out Stencil Art: Farm Animals by Laura Hambleton


Pop-Out Stencil Art: Farm Animals by Laura Hambleton

Simple and ingenious, Pop Out Stencils: Farm Animals shows you how to make amazing pictures, bunting, puppets, cards, mobiles and much more. Stencilling is the perfect way to engage the imagination; these animal stencil shapes will inspire young creatives to experiment and become confident in their drawing abilities. They'll be encouraged to choose paints, coloured pencils, crayons, felt tips, or chalk; and brushing, stippling, dabbing, or sponging to create different effects. They will enjoy hours of satisfying, absorbing activity and experience the true pleasure of making art. Each spread has three different sizes of pop-out stencils and three creative ways to use them. The stencils can be used time and again, and stored in their nested shapes inside the book.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
